Nah, j/k. In all seriousness, I bricked my first go on the VM670. I got the root in place and installed ROM Manager, but the custom recovery failed with a blank screen. I accidentally factory reset (i say accidentally because I did not know at the time) and the rest was history.
New phone - installed root (via gingerbreak) and then ROM manager - same issue. So I used ADB to flash the "xionia_cwma_12518.4_virgin.img" to recovery and am now at least able to boot into that.
From here I am hesitant to do anything else as last time it failed - but I did perform the stupid factory reset after MODding...
Okay i just rooted my vm optimus v with gingerbreak. I want a rom like that aosp one, and im new to the whole backup & stuff. Can someone walk me thru the steps to install it? Thanks!
I would use hormonia 2 its a great rom!! Here you can get an Ideal of how to do it.. http://m.youtube.com/index?desktop_uri=/&gl=US#/watch?v=l_POvZaMlOk
just don't use rom manager, instead use vm670NH recovery, once in recovery mold you'll have the same options to backup,wipe,format,etc. Keep on mind that I don't know if this recovery will work with the new ov screen aka 2.2.2 ,because I got this ov when they first came out!!! To flash this recovery use an app called flashimageGUI.apk
VM670NH.img works on old and new screens. The recovery rom manager flashes will result in black screened recovery on new screens
